I love reading History. I find it more fascinating than most fiction. Although a registered Independent voter, my political and social views lean to a conservative outlook. Both major political parties are, in my opinion, totally bankrupt in ideals and intent. Both pull too far in their respective direction, and all have sold themselves to the highest bidders. A New England Yankee, I have great admiration for the founders of our nation. The early ones, Washington, Adams Jefferson and others put their lives on the line. Add Madison, Franklin and more. We are most fortunate that our Revolution/Rebellion was organized and led by educated, enlightened men (not to forget Abigail and some other uncelebrated women) who thought far into the future, and it took other men like Jackson, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and FDR to maintain the hopes & dreams of millions. France's Revolution started well, but was taken over by lesser men, and fell into the Reign of Terror, and the Guillotine. Russia suffered Lenin & Trotsky. We were luckier! I cannot get through the day without reading the Comics. Regular comics first, then the Political 'toons. Unemployed for 35 months, I finally landed a good position with a good company! However, now I have less time to comment, (a relief to some) and less time to read other comments. Just typing out my gripes & diatribes gives me a feeling of being a little less helpless, and I feel better having said it. Sometimes I goof. I do like reading other comments: occasionally I learn something.

    It worked with the SCOTUS, so why not?

    A person must be either very desperate, or a republican to work for him. Bezo’s, like the French nobles before the Revolution, lives the high life in full view to his underpaid, overworked bladder-bursting employees!

    Taking steps to reduce emissions takes away from profits & dividends. End of discussion.

    Certainly Cuba has had legitimate complaints about the way the U.S. acted during the 50’s & early 60’s, but that was a long time ago. And, the U.S. has grievances about the seizure of private property and pushing Russia to attack us with nuclear weapons. Isn’t it time for Havana to try to mend fences and begin with a fresh slate? Or do they want to hate forever?

    Though I had both Pfizer shots, I still put on the mask when I go into a store or any crowd of people. I’ve gotten this far, and why blow it now when this second variant is making the rounds in Massachusetts?

    At the rate we are poisoning this planet, your last sentence is prophetic.

    Myself? I am yearning for a return to regulated Capitalism, which worked well for ALL Americans. (Economically, anyway)

    Elysium is a 2013 American science fiction action film written, produced and directed by Neill Blomkamp. It stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Alice Braga, and Sharlto Copley.4 The film takes place on both a ravaged Earth and a luxurious artificial world (Stanford torus design, one of the proposed NASA designs) called Elysium.5 The film itself offers deliberate social commentary that explores political and sociological themes such as immigration, overpopulation, transhumanism, health care, worker exploitation, the justice system, and social class issues.6
